That would be a sad loss; and he would be difficult to replace.

Having looked back a bit on the net I think he is out of contract this summer

Pieces on the ruck.co and the Bristol newspaper said that Sale and Sarries were after him last year but he was committed to Quins at least until the end of his contract in 2018

Considering he's a British Lion and had a very good autumn for England, I've not been that impressed with Sinckler for Quins this season.

If he did go, im not sure we would replace him.  We would still have Collier, Swainston, McNulty and Ibuanopke, plus Sassone in the Academy.  I think we might need to lose one more  before we saw another TH come in.  No need for 5 first team THs (esp as none of them are internationals).  Ibuanopke and Mcnulty only signed new deals in Feb, so unless they were one year deals they are staying.

I thought Collier was capped? And he was name checked as being one f the best in the Prem.

Swainston and McNulty should be nowhere near a premiership matchday squad. Just because we have lots of props, does not mean you shouldn't replace one of Europe's best, if he does go

He is, but I doubt he is going to be playing for England anytime soon again (behind Cole, Williams and Sinck at least).  May get a shot if injuries happen.  Merrick was name checked by EJ.  I take what he says with a pinch of salt most of the time.

I not saying he shouldnt be replaced, Im saying that unless another moves on Im not sure PG would replace him in the squad.   I did not realise Mcnulty had signed a new deal in Feb till I looked it up.  I guessed he would be moving on (Although PG may have seen something in him, who knows).

Can't disagree with that. Although I don't know how much longer Cole will be in the frame, especially after RWC. If Sinck does go (and I hope he doesn't) perhaps the increased game time will help Collier to develop more?

Fair point, although I like the way we are using our props (in truth, the whole squad) in rotation.  Gone are the days where we seem to be running players into the ground

My understanding is that he signed a four year contract with Quins, so if he is moving on, he will need to buy himself out of the remaining two years of his contract.

I canít bear the arrogance of Jim Hamilton and Andy goode on the ruck podcast. They speak like they are seasoned internationals with a Grand slam/World cup or two to their name.

They are no where near the standard we are looking for if we want to become serious again.
